Hot Smoked Salmon Salad with Egg & Mustard Potatoes

Hot Smoked Salmon with Egg and Mustard Potatoes - A delicious filling hearty salad that is great for any occaision. Gluten Free. Dairy Free. Whole 30.

Hot Smoked Salmon Salad with Egg & Mustard Potatoes – A delicious warm salad that can be enjoyed at any time of year! The tasty hot smoked salmon goes perfectly with crispy mustard potatoes, slightly oozy, runny egg, rocket, capers and chives, beautifully dressed with a lemon mustard dressing.

Did I mention the word….yum??? This salad is full of flavour and is not only delicious but very satisfying!

We have just enjoyed a nice long weekend for the Queens Birthday Weekend and I served this up for some guests and it went down a treat! The weather is swinging wildly at the moment making it a bit tricky to plan in advance what to serve guests…

In the past week we have experienced beautiful clear crisp days that can get rather hot in the sun and is a pleasure to be outside – to quite chilly days where you definitely don’t want to venture outside – to extreme rain and hail warnings! This hot smoked salmon salad is a nice “safe” dish to serve up for guests that covers all seasons!

Its safe to say that Auckland isn’t at its best over winter, its usually rain, rain and oh more rain! I’m currently dreaming of warmer pastures and thanking my lucky stars that I don’t have to go out and sit in rainy traffic today.

Hot smoked salmon is always something of a treat to me – I love it’s creamy texture and smoky flavour. It isn’t cheap and as it is so rich a small amount can go a long way. Add in some crispy potatoes (who doesn’t love them?) and oozy egg and salty capers you have brunch/lunch dish made in heaven!

I hope you enjoy this recipe, please share if you do! Have a lovely week x

 

Love Food Nourish Nutrition Tips

Salmon is a great source of omega 3 essential fatty acids which are well known to have cardiovascular benefits, help with enhanced mood and cognition and joint protection. Eating your protein (salmon and egg) with some bitter greens such as rocket and a bitter dressing such as lemon can help get your digestive juices flowing and can assistΒ  your body in breaking down and assimilating the protein in your meal. This may be something you don’t care too much about, but I cannot tell you how important this is! Poor digestion was one of the most common things I used to see with clients in my naturopathic clinic.

When the body doesn’t digest protein properly this can contribute to food intolerances, hormone and thyroid issues and digestive problems among other things.Β  Supporting a healthy digestive system by including bitter foods in your diet is a simple change you can make to your daily diet πŸ™‚

      June 7, 2017 at 11:07 am Hi Angela thanks so much. The hot smoked salmon actually refers to the smoking process of the salmon, hot vs cold, but I can see how that can be confusing with the title so thanks for pointing that out. The salmon is served cold but can also be heated through if preferred :)

    June 26, 2017 at 10:55 pm This is such a gorgeous recipe - we made a version the other night with smoked mackerel fillets after reading this which was really nice but this week I am going to get hold of some hot smoked salmon and wholegrain mustard (we seem to have eaten all ours so we ended up missing it off this time) and make it as per the recipe :)
